Virtual SNF Run | June 15-21, 2020

The Virtual SNF Run is over!

This summer, the SNF Run adapted to virtually unprecedented times and went virtual for the first time, inviting you to run your own 5K from wherever you were to support 81 Greek hospitals. Distances were kept, but greater ones were covered all over Greece–and the world, always together and always for a good cause!

Almost 900 runners were joined virtually together by the joy and the charitable mission of the Virtual SNF Run. From Athens, Lefkada, Evros and Chania, to Berlin, London, Toronto, and New York. you all passed the torch on to each other promoting the good cause of the race, and succeeded – through your optional contribution – to collect the amount of €7000, which will be tripled with the additional contribution by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) and transferred to 81 hospitals around Greece.

On the evening of International Olympic Day, June 23, the announcement of the Virtual SNF Run results was streamed as part of the Summer Nostos Festival RetroFuture Edition in an event featuring your best snapshots from the race. The event was presented by iMEdD Managing Director, SNF DIALOGUES Executive Director, and journalist Anna-Kynthia Bousdoukou.

You can find the results here.
